The Limit of Technology

The solution to the "Fermi Paradox" is simple - there exists a hard upper limit of feasible technology that no species can ever get past regardless of effort. The laws of physics preclude a greater degree of control over matter/material to allow for the higher realms of technology that sci-fi fantasizes about. Something being "theoretically possible" DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT IS EVER ACTUALLY POSSIBLE - and that's assuming the technology actually is even theoretically possible in the first place.

The universe is teeming with intelligent lifeforms. They also max out at the "upper limit" of technology, which is slightly more advanced than where humans are now.
Human's are going to hit the wall within the next 5 to 15 years.

Pick related is a famous S-Curve. Singularity people and others like it believe that we're just now at the foot of the curve, and we're about to hit a great exponential increase up. But they are wrong. The past 150 years of the industrial revolution WAS the exponential increase when you look at human civilization as a whole and we are already curving off at the top of the graph. This is it.

Some anons will seethe and cope at this post. Just wait for 10 years and you will be forced to accept the reality of the Universe.
